Jordan page 3

Location: Petra, Jordan

Petra

The first biclenium of this site, Bab al Siq

Aaron's tomb, towering above Petra, built on the place believed to be where he died.

The wow moment of the first sight of the Treasury, the main site.

The Siq. The narrow gorge was created by a natural split in the mountain.

..and the third level discovered underground. An amazing find. The floor of the gorge was found to be thirty metres lower than it is today. Flash floods and weathering have deposited debris which has raised the floor level.

The fabulous Treasury

The square shaped monument, Qasr al Bint.

The amphitheatre with cave dwellings showing in the cliff face behind.

The Great Temple

The Urn Tomb, part of the Royal Tombs.

Some of the many wayward donkey riders ferrying tourists along the gorge which was a seven mile return trip! It seemed to be the intrepid Young that were taking advantage of this!
